In 2011, our researchers agreed on the following main areas of research which constitute the research profile of the Heidelberg University of Education:
- Teacher Professionalism / Teaching and School Development
- Diversity and inclusion with the aim of achieving educational equity
- MINT and Science Education with the goal of a critical-constructive appropriation of scientific-technical facts
- Media education, communication and linguistic-literary education
To facilitate cooperation in research projects within these research foci, communication structures spanning faculties are in place.
A part of the personnel and material that the university allocates to the funding of research activities is used to strengthen this research in clusters.
